Aiming To Improve Stickhandling Skills
Company Develops Interactive Video Game Aimed To Improve Stickhandling Skills!
(PRWEB) -- It's that time of year, where thousands of enthusiasts head to the cold rinks to enjoy the sport of
Helping hockey players of all ages train their stickhandling skills, Halifax based Skillz Systems launched an
interactive video game, called QuickStickz.
Hockey players can use any hockey stick, a computer and Internet access to play QuickStickz virtually anywhere
and at anytime. The system includes cameras to track a custom ball and then feeds that information to the training
software on the player’s computer.
“What we’ve done is taken kids’ love of hockey and their love of video gaming and combined the two,” says
Dean Dachyshyn, Skillz Systems Chief Operating Officer.
QuickStickz which launched just over a week ago, has been in beta testing over the past 2 years. Young eager
hockey players across Nova Scotia were able to test and play the video game providing feedback, which was
incorporated into the official product.
Endorsed by Buffalo Sabres assistant coach James Patrick and Phoenix Coyotes head coach Dave Tippett,
QuickStickz is poised to be the next generation training device. “We are looking forward to setting the hockey
world on its ear with this revolutionary new training,” Dachyshyn says.
